Why do Divisions exist?
• Provide division members and others with access to
the information and the people they need to succeed
professionally.
– I want access to my discipline’s technical/professional
information
– I want to connect and communicate with like-minded chemists.
• Provide recognition through awards,
grants/scholarships, fellowships, and other means.
American Chemical Society

Divisions and DAC
• Divisional Activities Committee (DAC)

Councilors (lots of division representation, but we
don’t have reps from every division)
– Meets at each national meeting

Next steps: Best Practice Sharing
•
DAC
– Shares Best Practices overview with division ExComs
– Creates electronic sharing site for Best Practices
– Makes POD short technology available for division promotions
– Shares data on division membership by local section
– Host bi-monthly conference call for division leaders
– Engages MAC to assist with recruitment/ engagement
•
Divisions
– Collect Best Practices on a separate “FORM”
– IPG report becomes a poster
– Division creates and a “who we are” Poster
– Division displays IPG and information posters at SciMix, etc.
American Chemical Society
76
Discussion
• Would developing tools to help share Best Practices be
valued by your division?
• Would your division participate in sharing – adapting
Best Practices?
• Feedback – comments on next steps/ action plans:
• Would you add steps
• Would you eliminate steps
• What would you like done first
• Would you help sell this to your ExComs?

POD Shorts
John C. Katz
Director, Member Communities
Staff Liaison, Committee on Divisional Activities
American Chemical Society
Big Idea
ACS is in a global competition to obtain and
disseminate high-quality scientific information.
To further that goal, we want to make it as easy
as possible for people to contribute – and
consume – content that will help them advance.
American Chemical Society
79
Presentations on Demand
Since the 2009 Salt Lake City meeting, ACS has
been capturing and posting selected, full-length
presentations delivered at national meetings.
Content includes audio-synced slides and audio.
American Chemical Society
80
Cost/Benefit of POD
Benefit: Selected speakers at national meetings receive
greater exposure for their work.
Benefit: More ACS members can access content
delivered at national meetings, whether or not they
attended the meeting.
Cost: Expensive to capture due to labor and equipment
costs in hotels and convention centers.
American Chemical Society
81
Challenge: How to Capture/Share
Content at a Lower Cost
POD Shorts Concept:
Participating presenters use 3-5 minutes of video
time to share – with or without slides - what they
think their fellow scientists most need to know
about their presentation.
American Chemical Society
82
POD Shorts Advantages
• Potential appeal to a wider range of NM presenters
• Shorter pieces of content may be more inviting to consume for
time-challenged audiences
• Presenters may record and review their presentation, doing
several “takes” in our ‘studio’
• Presenter can talk, present in a regular format with slides, a
combination of both, or even conduct a question and answer with
a colleague.
• ACS staff can capture and disseminate POD Shorts at a fraction of
the cost of full-length POD
American Chemical Society
83
POD Shorts in Denver
Run an experiment to find out:
1. Are speakers interested in participating in this
concept?
2. Are audiences interested in consuming this
content?
3. Can staff readily schedule, capture, and post
40-50 POD Shorts?
American Chemical Society
84
Process for Denver
January 27: Message sent to division chairs alerting them
to POD Shorts process
February 4: To save divisions time/effort, staff will contact
all Denver oral presenters inviting them to participate
(first-come/first serve)
March 4: Deadline for presenter response
March 11: Staff confirm day/time appointments to the 4050 POD Short participants
American Chemical Society
85
Post-Denver
• POD Shorts to be posted with POD content
approx. 4 weeks after meeting
• Assess Denver POD Shorts experiment with
DAC in Boston
• If results support, possibly capture 90-100 POD
Shorts in Boston
American Chemical Society
86
Summary
• POD Shorts is an effort to expand opportunities for
people to contribute and consume content.
• Leverages the value of information delivered at national
meetings.
• Provides greater exposure for presenters.
• Provides for economical capture and distribution of
content.
Big Question: Will presenters and audience respond
favorably?

Free Division Membership Data
24,113 new members joined ACS in 2013. Of that number, 9,184 joined a
division at no cost.
During 2014, 33% of those who joined a division at no cost in 2013 paid to
extend their division membership, or purchase another division membership.
Put another way:
•
38% of those eligible for a free division membership in 2013 availed
